saying we could have snow within about 12 hours? so hard to believe in fact i don't think we're going to see much. wind out of the west at 10 miles per hour right now. we're dealing with partly cloudy skies. pretty nice night. 45 frederick, 45 manassas, 52 winchester. we have been above freezing for so long now i do not expect any of the snow to stick on the roadways. that's really the case. no rain, no snow across our region. when this comes in it will start off as rain because we've been so warm. here's the system. a very small system. but notice, this is all rain. i do have snow turned on. the only area of snow is a little bit farther up here towards the north. this was the system that was going to interact with this one and create a big nor'easter off the coast. that's not going to happen anymore. now we're just talking about the first system moving in. notice here we are 8:00 just the cloud cover. but already seeing some snow back toward the west possibly. look what happens around noon. we see the rain inside the d.c. metro area and along i-95. back to the west we got some of that snow.
good clip. we'll have winchester along i-81, western portions of 66 towards mountains. around 5:00 here's the rain snow line once again right along i-95. rain to the south and east. snow to the north and west. geathersburg, damascus, fredricks. cableville. cable town towards the martinsburg area. winchester all seeing the snow. eventually it works into d.c. but fairly light by this point. because of that and the rain that's already fallen the roads are going to be aok. this is something new. sunday was the day that we were thinking that we'd get a little bit more. but notice the latest computer model takes the storm farther off the coast just gives us some shower activity. mostly rainshowers on sunday. so take a look at the snowfall potential. rain to the south, a mix waldorf annapolis and frederick 1 to 2 baltimore maybe northwest d.c., fair fax, warrenton. that's 1 to 2 on the grass and trees not the roadways. this won't have an impact. y
lot of snow tomorrow that's not what's going to happen at all. you'll be disappointed. 2 to 4 inches to the west. watch out the higher elevations, though. that's the area we could see some issues. here's what i'm expecting during the day tomorrow. rain-snow mix. most roads a okay. north and west maybe some issues but i think we'll be fine. accumulation only on the cars grass and trees. next couple of days, rain snow on sunday but i took the chance down. it is a weather look day tomorrow because of what's happening. 42 on sunday. then we get to 45 on monday. then we start to break out again. here come the cherry blossoms wednesday, thursday and friday. nice and warm. that's the kind of weather you want when you're out there looking at those boss solossoms. 74 on thursday, friday maybe a late day storm. >> thank you, doug. coming up after this break the terps experiencing some kind of march madness tonight. a good kind. >> here's jimmie fallon rs
